What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

Designated Semiotician
May 31, 2004 — 12:30 am

I’ve been enjoying Tim Virkkala’s relatively new webpage Designated Semiotician the past few days. Tim probably doesn’t know it, since we’ve never communicated directly, but he is the main reason I discovered (and fell in love with) Gore Vidal and H.L. Mencken. The prior author being mentioned by Eric as a writer Mr. Virkkala admires and the latter mentioned on one of his many lists populating the Internet.

One of his (Mr. Virkkala’s) missives I particularly enjoy:

Even bad poetry is wonderful
When personal, and a gift.
But the higher reaches of mediocrity
Becomes unbearable when
Published by strangers.
And bought?
Perish the thought!
